Happy New Year 2018 !!!
Christmas is over so as the eating chocolate, drinking prosecco and long sleep in the mornings....
I am going to kick start this January with this delicious hummus inspired by
and those beautiful organic homemade flatbreads ....
For the hummus you will need:
2 onions, sliced
1 tin of chickpeas or 300g cooked
1 clove garlic
2 Tbsp tahini
juice of one lemon
generous drizzle of good olive oil
Heat some olive oil in a pan, add the onion and slow cook until caramelizes.
Tip the chickpeas into a bowl. Cover with boiling water and allow to sit while the onion is cooking.
Tip drained chickpeas into a blender, half the onion, tahini, lemon juice, olive oil, salt and garlic and blend until smooth.
Serve the hummus with the rest of the onions...
For the flatbreads I used:
400g organic seeded brown flour
about 250 ml water
2 Tbsp olive oil
1 tsp salt
1 Tbsp sesame seeds
Simply mix the ingredients, form a dough and leave it to rest for a few hours or even overnight.
When you need the flatbreads, heat a non-stick pan , dust a surface with flour, tip the dough on it and divide the dough into 10 - 12 balls.
Roll each ball flat and place them on the hot pan 2 or 3 at the time.
Cook the breads 3 to 4 minutes on each side or until nicely coloured.
I like to brush the flatbread with olive oil before serving.
Any leftover ? you can freeze them ( never happened to me though )
note: the breads have a nice texture, more on a chewy side rather then soft
